Scotland: how’s your area doing and what % is it going over HR value?

I’ve heard a lot about the market cooling down but in Glasgow especially the southside and westend it is still going over HR by 10-20%. Interested to know local areas and the % they’re going for over HR value.

    I'm not paying a great deal of attention, as I am not in the market, but some friends are looking to buy a fisherman's cottage somewhere along the Moray Coast. They are going remarkably quickly, with a lot of offers, and often closer to 20% over home report than 10. 

    I imagine that type of property is often bought by cash buyers, so less susceptible to mortgage rate hikes.
